        1. Jesus! Name of wondrous love,
        Name all other names above,
        Unto which must every knee
        Bow in deep humility.

        2. Jesus! Name decreed of old,
        To the maiden mother told--
        Kneeling in her lowly cell--
        By the angel Gabriel.

        3. Jesus! Name of priceless worth
        To the fallen sons of earth,
        For the promise that it gave,
        "Jesus shall His people save."

        4. Jesus! Name of mercy mild,
        Given to the holy Child
        When the cup of human woe
        First He tasted here below.

        5. Jesus! Only name that's given
        Under all the mighty heaven
        Whereby man, to sin enslaved,
        Bursts his fetters and is saved.

        6. Jesus! Name of wondrous love,
        Human name of God above;
        Pleading only this, we flee,
        Helpless, 0 our God, to Thee.
